Upload a video to an activity

When you upload a video to an activity, Ruzuku will host that video for you. We'll also automatically convert your MP4 video into a Web- and mobile-optimized format for your students to view.

By default, Ruzuku transcodes all video files that are uploaded into SD quality. High-definition (HD) video is video of higher resolution and quality than standard-definition (SD). Since Ruzuku transcodes all videos to SD, there may be some loss in quality and resolution if you are uploading a HD quality video. Ruzuku only supports SD quality video at this time.

Note that each video file must be no larger than 2,000 MB (2 GB) and should be in MP4 format.

Please name your video file as simply as possible to ensure the best transcoding (all lower case, no spaces, punctuation or special characters).
